This Gnome is retired. He measures 8-3/4" tall and 6-1/2" in diameter.
This one is "Blackie". This Woodspirit lives on Rattlesnake
Mountain. He is known as Blackie because he gets all of his
firewood and acorns from the black oak tree that grows on
the highest point of Rattlesnake Mountain(approximately 4000
feet). Because the hawks like to circle this mountain, he has
camouflaged his visible red hat with a black oak leaf, but was
still spotted by two small snails who are hitching a ride in
his basket. The coin from Romania shows a farmer planting, with
the sun rising over the mountains. Blackie loves this tree so
much that he is on his way to the foot of the mountain to plant
its offspring. He is happy to give the snails a ride--he knows
that otherwise they would not make it to the valley below before
the first snowfall.
